Katyayana lists 13 dosas concerning A 1.1.56, which are here focused on, in order to try to understand if the actual difficulty came from the fact that the place-holders are sequences of sounds, since we are quite convinced that, not only, as it is generally agreed, Pāṇini did not mean eka-aL-vidhi in A 1 1 56 but also, contra Joshi and Roodbergen, neither Patañjali did. Reading Patañjali’s discussion of the varttikas, there are many hints showing that his position can hardly be reduced to a mechanic computational procedure. The idea itself shows to which point the domain between what’s typically phonological and what’s other (morphological etc.), according to the well known Kiparsky's proposal, may be fuzzy.
